We Need To Find Each Other
Brian Ca & Douglas Becker
What happens if I forget to remember ?
How to understand a past I have not lived ?
For this creation, Brian CA & Douglas Becker orient their research around the themes of memory and identity. They have invited Danish composer Mike Sheridan, who is re-creating his first album I Syv Sind, 20 years after its first release.
Through a hybrid and intergenerational performance, drawing on our collective archives, the protagonists seek to create a sensorial dialogue, not only between them, but also with the audience placed in 360° around the stage. In this performative space, a body, that of Douglas, 67 years old, lies on a dissection table as the audience enters. He asks himself : "What happens if I forget to remember ? How can I understand a past I did not live ? What am I doing here ?"
What if forgetting one's past, questioning one’s identity, one’s gender or one’s memory allows for new perspectives to emerge ? Could we open up possibilities for re-imagining? What are the common questions that will lead us to think more expansively about our expectations and our embodied history? How can we work together to imagine new, non-hierarchical ways of exchanging information that will enable us to co-exist in a more meaningful way?
